Good friends - Patato Valdez, Martin Cohen & Tito Puente in the LP Studio celebrating Tito's Hollywood Star, 1990.
LP announces a new Instagram page featuring photos of many of the percussionists and drummers that were instrumental in the development of Latin Percussion. The images are the work of LP founder Martin Cohen. Spanning four decades, the photos mark LP's 50th Anniversary in 2014.
Martin Cohen's distinct and fluid artist images were borne from his love of photography combined with his passion for music. The same players who helped Cohen fine-tune his percussion instruments were also the subject of his iconic photos.
Classic photos of celebrated percussion and drumming legends such as Tito Puente, Carlos "Patato" Valdez, Armando Peraza, Candidio Camero, Giovanni Hidalgo, Dizzy Gillespie, Phil Collins, and Buddy Rich are featured on the site. Additional photography will be added regularly.
